Groupe de recherche «chEERSLab»

The Cheers Lab (Swiss Emotion Experience, Regulation, and Support Lab) is interested in affective processes such as emotion reactivity and regulation in children, adolescents, and young adults with and without developmental disabilities. Besides our strong focus on Autism Spectrum Disorder, we are very interested in gaining a better understanding of the socio-emotional profiles of individuals with Williams Syndrome. We aim to understand more fully socio-emotional processes, how they relate to each other and how they are linked to mental health outcomes, including anxiety. We are using multiple methods for assessment, including new technologies such as Virtual Reality (VR).

Our lab also has an applied side: we are interested in developing training programs to alleviate emotional difficulties and better support individuals in their emotional growth. We have also developed board games to teach children about emotional competence and we are set to develop a VR game about emotions.

We are recruiting participants for various studies. Please don’t hesitate to contact us to learn more:
